This is a matrix, done by hansokolow in ProTools, of the following sources:

SBD: shnid=5227
source: sbd > ? > cdr > eac > shn

Fix of shnid 5227: The overlap between CDs 2 and 3 was deleted to make the transition seamless. The SHNs were converted to FLAC and shntool was used to clean up SBEs. Unfortunately archive does not have an AUD that I could use to take care of some of the problems listed below; if you have it, maybe you'd like to take a shot at it.

The original fileset included a declicked version of d2t02, as well as the original, so I'm leaving both in. Pick yer poison.

cut/splice in BTW @2:32 and again @4:11
2 drops or cuts in Blow Away @4:27 and 4:28
BTW hung up in EAC - there was a sync error and it took over 6hrs to get this track. I'm sure it
ain't exactly perfect.
There was a bunch of clicks in Estimated from 3:45 to 3:56, I used Cool Edit Pro to remove them. Hence the 2 versions of d2t2. Detection thresholds 13, 12, 10; rejection 11, 10, 8.
shns are from an EAC (secure mode) of audio discs received from Andrew Wigdahl


AUD: shnid=83791
Sennheiser 4xx's > Marantz PMDxxx > MC.

Playback of MCs recording deck (Marantz PMDxxx) > Sony D6 > Maxell XL90s (1st gen). 1st (gen) > Playback on Marantz PRD505 (azimuth adjusted) > Marantz Intergrated Stereo Amp MP-68 > SB Audigy4 on new P4 machine > Sound Forge normalization > WAV > CDWave > WAVs > Flacfrontend 1.7.1 (level 8) > flacs.

Recorded by Jeff Hubbard. Transfered Charles Bandrofcheck


My Notes: The SBD sounds great, but does have the clicks mentioned, especially in Black Throated Wind. I cleaned it up a little more, but there will be clicks here and there. As often happens, the first song has phasing issues, but the rest sounds great, even though the AUD was way slow, each song squeezed by as much as 4%.

Three nights in Landover with this being the last....Phils 50 in the middle. This show had some great jams....The best being Blow away....Brents voice was so loud and filled the Cap Center with that voice....so amazing ....you had to be there..since you cant this is the next best thing...

Happy day,

I sing to my son every night...been at it for 10 years now. Last night I was flipping through the lyric books and decided I'd do some Brent stuff, which is rare for me to do. Came across Blow Away and it reminded me of this show.

I was at this show and I absolutely agree that this was Brent's strongest performance. This rendition of Blow Away was incredibly powerful, and as he starts off on his passionate tirade at 6:10, the way Jerry drifts off, and then how Phil comes alive at 7:30...just...wow. The drummers hitting out their beat...and then the riff that goes off at 9:27 when Brent is practically frothing at the mouth...it brings back so many powerful emotions.

Although not necessarily in my top 10 of shows, this tape was played non-stop during two critical time periods of my life and I literally owe my life to it for the power it lent me.

Enough of my raving...thanks for posting this matrix and reminding me why I love the Grateful Dead and why I keep on seeing Furthur.

Thanks to you, I can delete all the 64 kbps crap I have from my library, and fill it with these crispy matrix shows.

Subject: Blow Away
I have not listened to this recording yet. But I have an old one on tape that I havnt seen in at least a decade, and I can tell you this is Brent's strongest and most intense performance ive ever heard. The Blow Away at the end of set one...Brent had a lot of strong moments in his run, especially in 1990, and the Dead realesed the night before on CD, but this Blow Away is not to be missed, Brent just looses it.
